Just one of two known to be in the U.S. and of 818 examples built, this Alpine A610 was previously imported to the U.S. from Japan and is presented in the uncommon factory Scarlet Red Pearl paintwork coupled with grey leather upholstery.

“It’s not often that you see something you’ve never seen,” explains Corbin Goodwin. “It’s basically the French equivalent of a 964. Anyone with big money can buy a modern supercar. This is an opportunity to own something that is totally outside of what people expect and know. It’s a really great driver’s car and a really cool artifact. This is the definition of a ‘hidden gem.’ “

The Alpine is powered by a 247bhp 3.0-litre PRV turbo V6, coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox. Almost entirely original, it has been enhanced with a Devil exhaust system for more exceptional performance and noise.

It sits on the original 16-inch ‘turbine’ alloy wheels, shod in Pirelli P Zero Nero tires at the front and P Zero Rosso tires at the rear. In the engine bay, silicone coolant hoses and charge pipes have been added, while the car has also been upgraded with stiffer anti-roll bar bushes and a billet block shift rod guide. Brake lines have been swapped for braided stainless-steel items.
